Dr. Thakkar DID NOT LISTEN to me or respect what I told him about my body. He was very rough and did not stop when I told him he was hurting me. I am a survivor of sexual assault and had a full blown panic attack during my exam. After I calmed down he came back into the room and talked to me like a child, which felt humiliating and demeaning. A few days after my appointment, I still have spotting, pain, and flashbacks. A shout out to the nurses who were lovely, kind, and supportive.

I honestly would not recommend Dr. Thakker to my worst enemy. He does not listen. He is very condescending. Go to him only if you want to sit in a cold exam room for hours, only to be yelled at, diagnosed based on his perceptions rather than medical evidence (example: if you're slightly overweight, he will decide you must have gestational diabetes despite test result data), and if you want a doctor who will find any flimsy excuse to perform a c-section. Quack quack.
